Over the Broad Earth
Over the Broad Earth, written by J.L. Feuerstack, has readers follow along with Schizophrenia Insidious Nervosa and Lord Zinc as they are born into a chaotic war. Schizophrenia, a.k.a. Schitz (pronounced “Skitz”), is brought to Hell, where he is taught with and by many other demons. They learn combat, strategy, their laws, and what they are fighting for; Lord Zinc receives similar training in Heaven. The angles and demons fight many wars against each other with their brethren for ultimate victory. Fighting for their Lords, God and Satan, the angel and demon are taken all over the world.
J.L. Feuerstack did an absolutely amazing job with Over the Broad Earth! I could gush about this book all day long. I will start by saying that I really appreciate the artwork in the book. I loved being able to see some of the characters drawn out. I enjoyed the tutorial at the beginning that shows how angels and demons are allowed to fight these wars for their respective Lords. The artwork of the different realms really helps when imagining where the characters are as well. It was very creative.
One of my favorite parts from the book was being able to listen to the music that was mentioned. Reading the author’s note is important in this book. Another aspect I loved was the lineage of the demons and angels. It was very detailed!
I will say that J.L. Feuerstack had a lot of characters to work with. While the main characters are Schizophrenia and Lord Zinc, it was sometimes hard for me to remember who the other characters were and who they were related to. Having the lineage of the demons and angels came in handy many times! All of the characters that were mentioned are very well developed though. They all had linked together in one way or another. They had a lot of history to go through as well. You will know what I mean when you read this spectacular book!
The plot of this epic fantasy novel was well written. I look forward to reading the second novel because I really want to see how Schizophrenia and Lord Zinc develop as leaders. I also want to know what will happen from what was mentioned at the beginning of this book. I cannot say more as it will give away too much. When you read this book, read every part of it. It is worth it!
Over the Broad Earth is one of the most creative angels and demons stories that I have read in a long time. This riveting fantasy novel expertly weaves together a variety of genres, from historical fiction to Christian fantasy, into a unique and thrilling novel. With fantastic writing, deep lore and intriguing characters, I truly look forward to the second book!
